Skip to comments.Flashback: McCain Used Same Tactic Against Obamacare Cruz Is Using Now
Posted on 09/26/2013 9:58:01 PM PDT by chessplayer
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) supported the tactics that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is using to attempt to defund Obamacare before he was against them, Breitbart News has learned.
(Excerpt) Read more at breitbart.com ...
Interesting I read at link but that info can be used both ways.
McCain is arguing ‘See, I fought as hard as Cruz did when it really mattered, to stop it from becoming law 2009’
I know here it will be seen as flipped, McCain should now too.
I’m curious. What tactic is Obama using to flip so many (R)’s into RINOs? Media, peer pressure, money, blackmail, mind control devices, spotting the week ones that got separated from their party, etc...
Obama, Reid and Boehner have proven that it only takes 3 men to run the USA into the ground.
Boehner has been essential to Obamas success, because Boehner has been deathly afraid of what The Media might say about him, if he ever actually did his job.
We need Cruz to be the Majority Leader in the US Senate in 2014.
We need Col. Allen West to be the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, preferably by being voted in this year by the active House Members. (Members can chose anyone to be Speaker).
We need an Eisenhower-like Republican to be President whose ego will not be bruised as we carve down the virtually unlimited raw power of the POTUS.
Lee would be perfect as that kind of POTUS.
Palin is to far left for me in her anti-business words and deeds.
Palin is better than all Democrats, but not what America will need to recover from the GWB/Obama overspending Binge.
Palin wields a mean axe, so put her in Treasury where she can chop the damned IRS down to size.
A potential POTUS would be Senator Scott of SC. 15 years running a small business, speaks well, and seems to have the Eisenhower type of ego.
Defunding Obamacare will determine the level of Republican support of Republican Candidates in 2014.
Abolishing Obamacare, Democratcare or Republicancare will insure a landslide victory for the Republicans in the House and Senate, as the Senate democrats will lose too.
Failure to defund or abolish Obamacare will insure that The New Republican Party takes Cruz, Lee and a few others from the Senate. We will fight the Old-Style Surrender Republicans for control of the RNC in 2014-2016.
We have learned the hard way because we were taught by the masters of cowardice: the sorry, Surrender Republicans.
We learned how they played their ballgame of promise anything and then betray their own principles, as well as our trust.
We kept score: Dole, strike one; McCain, Strike 2; Romney, STRIKE THREE !
Now WE say: BATTER UP !
Show me an Independent and I will show you an American that is thoroughly disgusted with both major Political Parties.
Usually these Independents see little difference between the various Party candidates who end up on the ballot.
Last year 9 million Independents who voted for McCain in 2008 chose not to vote for Romneycare or Obamacare in 2012. Good for Obamacare, bad for Romneycare.
Welfare Democrats and Surrender Republicans create most of the disgusted Independents, some of them even vote by holding their nose if they are not to disgusted to vote - - - .
BTW, the Disgusted Party is the largest political party in the USA, thanks to the consistent efforts of the Welfare Democrats and the Surrender Republicans.
Nobody is using tactics to turn them into anything. They’re being what they’ve always been: traitors to their country and what they claim to believe in. The only difference is that more of us are awake and acknowledging it.
In 1982 there were three freshmen in Congress that became best friends.
One was from Arizona,
One was from Nevada,
and the last little piggy,
Called Illinois his home.
McCain is a hypocrite & sell out.
There are three things that can corrupt or destroy a man: 1) money; 2) women; or, 3) ambition.
1 - offering someone a loan at incredibly low rates, then threatening to call in that loan unless the politician votes the way desired, for example.
2 - inviting Republicans out to a yacht and liquoring them up, then inviting whores on board to paw at the Republican politicians. Photographs are taken. This happened not so long ago on Sen.Machin’s (D-WV) yacht. It’s called ‘blackmail’.
3 - offering the politician a position that will boost their career. It doesn’t especially have to be a politician; the person could be in the government bureaucracy.
Personally, I do not think it is BHO2 who is doing this. If you go to Wikipedia and look-up the Council On Foreign Relations, you will find an illustration of a network diagram. The names on it will suffice to demonstrate how deep the corruption goes in our nation.
It would never happen, but it would be fun to see Cruz be voted Speaker of the House and unify the conservatives in both bodies under one leadership. Liberal heads would explode.
My question was really rhetorical and a sigh of frustration but your answer sounds like it comes from the Wolfgang Lotz playbook, “A Handbook for Spies” (I have a copy; great little book you don’t find just anywhere)...: )
Actually, it comes from President Harry S. Truman.
“Give ‘em Hell Harry” was a Congressman for a long time before FDR chose him as his VP. He was a shrewd observer of his fellow man; he served as an artillery officer in WWI, was a failed businessman and farmed for years in Missouri. He never went to college but read extensively. It was he who had the plaque on his presidential desk - THE BUCK STOPS HERE.
He referred to being President as akin to being a piano player in a whore house. I think what he meant was everyone there in government seemed to be for sale.
That’s because McCain has no principles whatsoever, apart from being an Obama lapdog.
McLame is just pi$$ed that the media attention he believes is rightfully his is going to Cruz for a couple of days.
